Rosberg quickest in final practice


Nico Rosberg's Mercedes was narrowly quicker than Red Bull's Max Verstappen in final practice at the Singapore Grand Prix on Saturday.

Rosberg was just 0.059 seconds ahead of Verstappen, with Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen third fastest, ahead of the second Red Bull of Daniel Ricciardo.

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner downplayed Verstappen's chances of taking pole position at Marina Bay Circuit, however.

"I doubt it. Lewis locked his front and flat-spotted so we didn't see his true pace and Rosberg looks like he has 0.1-0.2secs in there but we will see what happens," Horner said.

Former four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel struggled with his rear-end grip in fifth, while championship leader Lewis Hamilton ended up eighth fastest after locking his brakes and missing turn 7 on his fastest lap.

Force India's Nico Hulkenberg took advantage of Hamilton’s issues to claim sixth, with Toro Rosso's Daniil Kvyat seventh and his team-mate Carlos Sainz Jr ninth. Finland's Valtteri Bottas completed the top ten in the Williams.
